Introduction
Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), what about it?
“Continuously improve all operational conditions, within a production system; by stimulating the daily awareness of all employees” (by Seiichi Nakajima, Japan, JIPM)1, this is said to be the original goal of TPM. “Zero error, zero work-related accident, and zero loss.” Companies like ATS Training Courses & Workshops2, call this the motto of TPM. Total productive maintenance (TPM) is a manufacturing strategy that has been successfully employed globally for the last three decades (Chulhyun, Hakyeon &Jeonghwan, 2011). In today’s dynamic environment, a reliable production system is considered as a critical factor for competitiveness; thus, maintenance has risen from a mere tactical to a more strategic level for manufacturing organisations (Brah & Chong, 2004; Pinjala, Pintelon, & Vereecke, 2006). Total productive maintenance embodies continuous improvement and care of assets to ensure that their operation at optimum efficiency becomes an organizational value driver. One of its objectives is reducing an overall production cost, including how cost saving happened by finding the root causes of machine worn out and failure, then implement a precise and proactive countermeasure (Uche, 2011). From the TPM point of view, 6 big losses are to be found in the MedCorp B.V. Beilen. 1. Failures with the sturns in the Cilco machines, which make the whole line stop. These unplannend failures are handeled by the maintenance, but take a lot of precious time (and with that capacity is lost). This is 24 hours of “doing nothing” for the operators, and 24 hours of work done by the maintenance. This lost profit is € 720.000,- it is medicine you cannot make at that moment (24 hours * 1.5 kilos * €20.000)....
